Trivia

Often linked to the Ruth Ellis case, the novel and script were written two years before her trial and hanging, according to director J. Lee Thompson's biography. The resemblance was said to be coincidental. See more »

Goofs

When Mary Hilton carries out the murder she fires seven shots from a six shot revolver. There are cuts between a few different camera angles but this all takes place as her victim slowly falls to the ground. There is no time to reload. See more »

Gripping and Superb
30 November 2002 | by (Birmingham England) – See all my reviews

This film proved that Diane Dorrs was a superb serious actress. The obvious comparison to the tragic case of Ruth Ellis 12 months earlier only served to make a good film even better. The whole cast gave their heart and soul to it. A must for people who have not yet viewed it.
